I was dreading having to go to the American Ireland Fund Gala because it was on at the same time as the seventh game of the World Series, but when you tell someone you will be there, you try and make it.
So I went and to my surprise, the organizers of this great evening had the foresight to shorten their program, put up two big screen tv's and open the bar. I for one had the best time of any game yet, being with 700 or so Irish who get sports!
The event was a big success as usual, and I heard that a record number of funds was donated to them.
Well done to everyone involved.
Here is a slideshow of some of the folks who attended.
